Thursday was cold, but sunny for a change!

I went to Westborn at lunchtime to get some okra and flat leaf parsley. Since I was there anyway, I filled a container with lobster bisque and ate that at home for lunch.

When I got home after work, I watched the weather and then swept all the floors and vacuumed the living room area rug.

That done, I went back to watching the news.

I warmed up my meat sauce in the microwave while I made a half box of mostaccioli. I put the two together when the pasta was al dente and topped it with some shredded Parmesan cheese.

I was disappointed. It wasn’t bad, in fact it was really good. Even the Parmesan had melted a bit into the sauce and was gooey. But it wasn’t “great.” Sounds silly I suppose. But this wasn’t a can of Ragu, thrown on some pasta. I worked on this one.

Maybe it was the green peppers. It didn’t need green peppers! Did they really add anything to my meat sauce? Why did I put in the damn green peppers?

It might have been my choice of pasta. I forgot that mostaccioli is smooth. It’s penne that has the ridges that grab the sauce.

The only thing I had to be really proud of was the size of the dish. By using half the box of pasta and half the sauce I made, I had two good sized portions. So, I ate one and put the other in the fridge (after it cooled) as leftovers.

I joined the Red Wing game in progress and watched it until we lost 3-2 in overtime. Then I went to bed.
